Deadly end to Biketober Fest

DAYTONA BEACH, FL (WFLX) - It was a deadly end to the annual "Biketober Fest" in Daytona Beach.

Florida Highway Patrol says a Ford Explorer slammed into the back of a motorcycle near the event. Both riders were tossed onto the pavement and then, troopers say, the Explorer took off.

After the bikers hit the ground, the driver was run over by a truck and a PT Cruiser. "That is going to haunt you. That is somebody's life somebody's family that you just messed up. It is incredible, it is crazy."

Both people on the motorcycle died. Highway patrol found the Ford Explorer broken-down after being damaged in the crash.

It was just five miles from the crash site. They believe they may have the driver in custody.
